Sentimental gift ideas for Christmas

This is not my photo

The best types of gifts are those that are handmade and those that are more sentimental. Throughout 
my time of giving gifts, a lot of those are handmade or personalised towards that person. I would 
much rather give and receive a gift that someone has took time out of their day to make and put 
more time and effort into them. Since I love giving gifts I often find myself struggling for ideas and 
inspiration on new ways to show my appreciation to others. This year I've found quite a lot of 
sentimental gift ideas and can't wait to see people's faces when they open them on Christmas.

This year I've bought a few personalised prints for people and they're the ones that I can't wait to 
give. At the moment I'm loving star prints that are created of the night sky on a day of your choice. I 
also love coordinates prints of a memorable place for that person. This year I've also created a family 
print using wellingtons, as it's super simple yet more meaningful than a store-bought gift.

A few years ago I did a jar of 100 reasons why I love you for both my mom and nan to show my 
appreciation towards them. I included inside jokes, thoughtful messages and personal traits I love. 
Everyday they picked out a reason and read it to put a smile on their face. This would also be a 
great gift for your partner, on any special occasion - not just Christmas. 

Jewellery is he best types of gifts for people who are hard to buy for. The majority of people 
will always wear at least 1 piece of jewellery, whether that's a necklace, bracelet, ring or earrings. 
Notonthehighstreet and Etsy have the best selection of engraved jewellery, ranging from a small 
message on a necklace to initials on a ring. I had necklaces engraved with a message/quote that 
meant something to me and the person I was gifting them too.

For Liam's birthday I had a love book. This is a book that was completely customised as to reasons 
why I love Liam. The company that makes the love book also do love coupons that can be used 
whenever they like for a specific treat. This is a more unique gift that can last the whole year.

For Halloween I made bought a skull bucket and filled it with a bunch of chocolate, sweets and 2 
drinks that Liam loves as a random gift for him. I see a lot of treat buckets like this going around for 
all of the holiday's and a gift that goes down really well. This is, what I would describe as a, the 
perfect gift to give to someone on Christmas Eve, as it's super cosy and you can just sit down a 
watch a film with new pj's on, eating your sweets and chocolate from the treat bucket.
